- Weird. My automated weekly Twitter aggregator decided, all on its own, to post on Sunday rather than Saturday. ->
- The week’s @djunto has 31 pieces, with two full days to go. Here's a helpful 320kbps MP3 of the massive AIFF source: http://t.co/Fg8T8FPXQD ->
- It was darker before the dusk this evening, the storm breaking at land’s end, sky overhead stormy but in the distance lit by the waning sun. ->
- RIP, Robert Zildjian (89), of the namesake centuries-old Turkish cymbal-making family; founder of rival Sabian Cymbals. ->
- I get Bcc'd on soul-retrieval SKU requisitions. RT @Le_Berger: @disquiet It's like you have a direct link with the grim reaper or something. ->

- Man, @naotko has reminded me that the late @nofi was the compiler of the main @twitter list of @djunto participants: https://t.co/QzF3jON9pe ->
- "I did not believe I could be so sad to learn someone I'd never met passed away." From a fellow admirer of @nofi. ->
- Indeed. MT @happypuppyrecs: sad to learn of @nofi's death. at least his musical creations will be available for us to remember him with. ->
- It's not that it's odd that I am saddened by @nofi's death despite having never met him; I am sad in part because I never met him. ->

- That waning period after April Fools' Day where so much music PR seems like a failed prank attempt at writing failed PR. ->

- This week’s @djunto tribute to the late @nofi has gone live: http://t.co/XjWrMj8rJr http://t.co/mOP3ucVNnL. And it went to the email list. ->
- Thanks. It feels right. RT @vuzhmusic: @disquiet @nofi @djunto I'm glad you're doing this – I'm glad we're doing this. ->
- Psyched to see that SoundSelf passed its fundraising goal on http://t.co/ZJOFFl41bQ ->
